Smashwords book reviews by Shana O'Quinn

  • Midwinter Guest on March 12, 2013

    It was wonderful to see two Goddess from two different northern European persuasions together. This was well written and playful, a good read.
  • Herbert the Black on Jan. 24, 2014

    This was a much different sort of horror story, with a ghoulish and unexpected twist at the end. No vampires, zombies or undead creatures here, but the flesh and blood killer is all the more terrifying. I wouldn't mind hearing more of Herbert's ghastly adventures.
  • Sharmat's Folly on June 20, 2016

    This was good romp of a fantasy tale, with great world-building and vibrant characters. 'Slayer' stands in for all of us as we are swept along this lush world, making him the ultimate Everyman. Lots of traditional fantasy creatures such as eagles and elves, with some clever new, and sometimes horrifying, new ones. I recommend to any fantasy (or metal) enthusiast.
  • The War of the Wold on Nov. 27, 2016

    This is the second book of the Slayer series, and just as epic as the first one. We get to see more of the world Trena lives in and Jacob's half elf son. The original creatures and enemies blend in well with the traditional fantasy fair. Other than some minor grammatical flaws and sentence flow repetition, this book is a fine addition to your Kindle catalogue. Great fun!
